FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The first thing you will notice is their form fit and comfortable feel. Most garden gloves are bulky and ill fitting. Not FOXGLOVES – you can do anything with these gloves that you would do barehanded. The fabric that we use is a SUPPLEX nylon/LYCRA elastane blend that has a nice soft feel but is extremely durable and abrasion resistant. When you have to get into the soil you will find that the gloves protect your fingers and nails from the dirt that usually gets through other gloves. And when you are finished you can wash them under the tap or in the machine and you will find your gloves soft and clean ready for you to wear again and again.
At this time we offer the Original and Grip styles in small, a medium (woman’s) size and a large (man’s) size.Because of the Lycra elastane content they do stretch to fit many different size and shaped hands. Gauntlets and Works styles come in small, medium, large and extra large.
Because of the tight knit and the brushed surface soil will not penetrate the cloth and your hands and nails stay clean. Even working in muddy conditions, your hands are still protected.
FOXGLOVES are not waterproof – they are resistant to water and will not absorb it like cotton or leather – so you can continue to work in them in wet soil without compromising the quality of the fabric or your hands. When wet, water wicks away quickly and does not compromise your dexterity.
FOXGLOVES are not thorn proof, but if caught on a thorn, they will not rip and will continue to protect your hands. They may also be worn under a leather glove as a liner and will help prevent blisters obtained from stiff leather seams.
The fabric used in our gloves is very breathable so hands do not sweat.
FOXGLOVES are fully washable in the machine or under the faucet and may be dried in the dryer on low heat or line dried.
